Second Thots

Sometimes one has to step back, take pause, and have some "second thots"

Trying to have it both ways on Boisclair's sexuality

André Boisclair
This article in today's Toronto Star tries to make the argument that André Boisclair's troubles as leader of the Parti Québécois have little to do with the fact that he's gay.

A more objective and less politically correct observation might be this: Boisclair's troubles may have a lot to do with the fact that he was chosen as leader in part because he was gay.

You can't have it both ways. His homosexuality was trumpeted when things were going swell. Now the same people are dismissing it when things aren't going that swell.

Please note, I'm not bashing Boisclair because he's gay. I'm bashing the people who are trying to have it both ways because he's gay.
